Why Choose Calgary?

Immigrants are thriving in Calgary says new research that shows Edmonton and Calgary provided better economic opportunities to immigrants than other parts of the country:

• 29.4% of Calgary's population are immigrants

• Calgary Economic Development is a dedicated referral partner of Canada's IRCC Global Skills Strategy

• Calgary was named the most livable city in North America in the 2019 Global Liveability Index, and Calgary ranks in the #32 out of 231 cities around the globe for livability.

Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah, founder and managing lawyer at Ackah Law, says the Calgary community is open and welcoming to newcomers, especially immigrants who can help build a stronger economy:

There are so many opportunities for immigrants to work in Calgary and help grow our local economy. We need highly skilled and educated newcomers who can start businesses and employ other Albertans, and we need low-skilled workers throughout Canada in farming and blue-collar jobs.
